    This game is a must play for any Batman fan and a must play for any Telltale fan. The story is different and refreshing but has the best of Telltale baked in with the decisions and the flowing dialogue. It was a pleasure to play and another shining example of great story telling in a game and had some of the best QTE I’ve seen in one of their games.

    The usual Telltale's formula, applied to a superhero story, with some smart ideas and a plot focused much more on Bruce Wayne rather than on Batman himself.

    If you can accept the studio's adventure game formula and the fairly large deviations to the canon, then Batman: The Telltale Series is a good game. The story remains gripping, and the additions to the gameplay formula make this feel more refined over the studio's previous efforts. The lack of further technical polish, however, is unfortunate; fixing those issues would've placed this game in the upper echelon of the studio's offerings. As it stands, Batman fans will certainly want to check out this title.

    It's a game for Batman fans who really don't care about the form. Or for fans of Telltale's products who aren't picky about the content.

    About the only nice thing I can say about Batman is that it’s short. It only took me about eight hours to complete the game’s five episodes, and I was happy when it was over. So obviously, I don’t recommend this game to anyone for any reason, unless you’re an obstinate fan of the Dark Knight.

    Batman: The Telltale Series squanders its potential with a messy story obsessed with retreading older Batman tales.

    This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. Batman Telltale Series is a good game. Contains an engaging, original story. It shows that heroes also have a dark side. The game allows freedom of choice, so that Batman personality can be defined by the player. It would need to improve on the gameplay, which gets repetitive throughout the game. The investigation process should be much better. Expand

Really gives you a great choice system making interactions with icons always interesting but unfortunately it’s gameplay feels like an afterthought to the story making its quick time events and puzzles more of a stop in the well written story.

    What can I say, every next Telltale game seems more boring and less interesting and it's not because the Telltale games are worse, but becauseWhat can I say, every next Telltale game seems more boring and less interesting and it's not because the Telltale games are worse, but because the formula for making those game don't change at all.

    So the only thing I have to say is: This game is the same as all the Telltale games except this one is about Batman.

    If you are not bored of the formula, this game is for you. If you are a fan of DC Comics and Batman, this game is for you.

    Myself as a fan of Batman can actually recommend it, it's not canon, but let's be honest, what's canon in DC in those days?

    this game is just pure boredom there is literally nothing and if you're searching for batman you'll find more Bruce than batman
    if you're a batman fan you might slightly feel like this is a little less boring
    and if you're a telltale fan you'll be extremely disappointed
    if you're searching for a good telltale game go play the walking dead
